Xv usually doesn't work on TV-out ports.
it's a special thing, handled by DAC chips.
TV-out doesn't support YUV overlays.
(there is a trick for matrox g400 to swap heads, this way you can route
signal from DAC to TV-out... but it's a horrible hack)
about fsdga: it's obsoleted, and very buggy.
use -vo sdl if you want full-screen with software scaling.
